Bar-graph indicator for ac signals

Posted on Oct 24, 2012

Indicator was designed for displaying the peak level of small ac signals from a variety of transducers including microphones, strain gauges and photodiodes. The circuit responds to input signals contained within the audio frequency spectrum, i.e., 30 Hz to 20 kHz, although a reduced response extends up to 40 kHz. Maximum sensitivity for the component values shown, with VR1 fully clockwise, is 30 mV peak-to-peak.

The indicator can be calibrated by setting VR1 when an appropriate input signal is applied.
